Match Report for

Nichols College vs. Eastern Connecticut State University
18 September 2016

Location: Park in lot N at the Athletic Conference

Nichols College: 20    Eastern Connecticut State University: 65

Match played on turf football field. Nichols scored a penalty kick 1 minute in and then the rest of the half was one way traffic for Eastern. At half time, the score was 48-3. Nichols was down to 13 players due to injuries so Eastern agreed to play 13 a side and open substitutions. With Eastern eventually sitting their entire A side, play evened out a bit and Nichols managed 3 tries in the half to Eastern's 5 tries. I would like to commend the Eastern coach and his squad for their sportsmanship in keeping this match from getting out of hand. Point differential does effect standings in their league and they sacrificed that to ensure safety and a positive experience for the opposition.

Referee: Bill Bishop
